Author Jennifer Holm Visiting Crocker This Week!

It’s time for our annual book fair — a big book sale in our multipurpose room. The book fair is this Thursday and Friday, November 21 and 22.

On Wednesday, November 20 we are lucky to have a special guest visiting Crocker — author Jennifer Holm. Holm is the author of two extraordinarily popular graphic novel series Babymouse and Squish — some of the most popular books in the Crocker library! She’s also the winner of three Newbery Honors for her children’s novels Our Only May Amelia, Penny from Heaven, and Turtle in Paradise. To get ready for her visit, we’ve been reading Babymouse and Squish, making pictures of the characters, and making our own comics Our fifth grade classes are reading Turtle in Paradise, too.
